Voxy - Learn a language from life

Voxy - Learn a language from life | ICT tools for EFL | Scoop.it

We don’t believe learning should be based on static content, memorizing verb charts, grammar rules, or learning vocabulary words out of context. That’s why we create engaging exercises with authentic language used by native speakers. We don't write lessons for you, we curate real-world discourse and turn it into lessons adapted to your language level.

Voxy looks like a really great all round product to get students listening, reading and speaking. You can access it through any device, but the mobile app looks really great and it's one of the first I've seen that really seems to be drawing on the multimedia capabilities of mobile and tablet devices for language learning.

Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Flip Your Classroom - jonbergmann.com

Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Flip Your Classroom - jonbergmann.com | ICT tools for EFL | Scoop.it

As the school year starts, many teachers are wanting to implement flipped learning into their classes. Before you begin, I encourage you to answer each of the questions below. The purpose of the questions is to help teachers BEGIN the process of flipping their class. This is only the first step. Flipped Class 101 can lead to Flipped Learning, which is a second stage of the Flipped Class. Many teachers are asking for some step by step guidelines as they begin.

The very first question - "What will you flip?  (A lesson, a unit/chapter, a subject, or a class)" - definitely sets the context. You can dip your toe in or take the plunge. This post is well worth the time to read and then you can check out the related links.

Andy Kenworthy's curator insight, January 18, 2014 3:49 AM

Straight forward questions to consider. Good list of tools and apps to look into further. 

Tina Jameson's curator insight, January 23, 2014 6:09 PM

Once you understand the purpose of a 'Flipped Classroom', you need to look at the best way to achieve success.  In addition to suggesting questions that you should ask yourself before 'flipping' your class teaching, the article lists a number of potential tools to be used for recording your offline material.

Interview with Nik Peachey: Publishing, eLearning Trends and Technology | ICT tools for EFL | Scoop.it

What I really like about e-publishing and in particular blogging, is the immediacy of the process. You can have an idea today and publish it today and by tomorrow you can start reading peoples responses to that idea. For me that’s really fantastic and I get a real buzz from it and learn so much from doing it. Often the responses and the interaction I get as a result of that cause me to modify and rethink my ideas and beliefs, so I continue to learn from what I do.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:21 PM

Some of the animation links catalogued here will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students.

Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense.

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | ICT tools for EFL | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 15, 2014 6:18 PM

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.
